2010 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks

Kansas City at Seattle
Monday 07/05 10:10 PM Eastern
3 units on Seattle -1.5 runs +100 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Seattle Mariners have a pair of aces and not much else within the starting rotations. One of those aces, Felix Hernandez takes the mound tonight to open the M's series with the Kansas City Royals. It is one thing to have an ace on the mound, but when that ace is "in the zone" as Hernandez is, opponents are going to struggle. Hernandez has pitched three straight complete games, and in his last four starts has gone at least 8.2 innings. He has been in the groove, allowing just 16 hits in the 35.2 innings, pitching to a 1.26 ERA. The Royals counter with a struggling Brian Bannister who has completed just 17 innings in his last four starts allowing 18 runs. The Royals are just 1-7 when Bannister gets the ball with a moneyline from +151 to +200. I like Seattle on the runline in this one.
